9th International Greenhouse Gas and Animal Agriculture Conference

Join us at the 9th International Greenhouse Gas and Animal Agriculture (GGAA) conference, a gathering of leading scientists in the field of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from animal agriculture. 

The conference will be taking place in Nairobi, Kenya in October 2025 (dates to be confirmed), hosted by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and the Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research (NIBIO).

At the 9th GGAA, you'll have the chance to delve into cutting-edge research, connect with experts and participate in lively discussions covering GHG mitigation, measurement techniques, advanced modeling, and on-farm practices. You’ll get to discover insights into policies addressing agricultural impacts on GHGs and stay updated on the latest scientific developments. There will also be field visits you can join to national parks, farms and rangeland sites, including ILRI’s Kapiti conservancy and research station on the outskirts of Nairobi.


Why Nairobi, Kenya?

  1. To spotlight Africa's livestock-related climate efforts, fostering fresh collaborations within the region.
  2. To raise awareness of the broader climate challenges faced in Africa, emphasizing the need for multidisciplinary cooperation in tackling these critical issues.
  3. To expand the conference focus to encompass the socio-economic and political dimensions of GHG emissions and climate change, ensuring a comprehensive examination of the topic.
  4. To leverage the regional partnerships established by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), enhancing the conference's effectiveness and reach in addressing these pressing concerns.


Who should attend? 

We invite international scientists and policymakers, especially from Africa, to share their work in livestock-related climate adaptation and mitigation. Participants include academic scientists, students, governmental research institutions, policy makers, and private industry representatives in agriculture.

Our last conference was in 2022 at the University of Florida, USA, which attracted close to 400 delegates from over 40 countries, including renowned speakers.

Join us in Nairobi and be part of the global effort to address greenhouse gas challenges in animal agriculture!
